Two Pickups Totaled in Crash

ELLSWORTH — Police said two pickup trucks collided Friday when one of the drivers involved pulled onto Route 1 from Washington Junction Road and in front of the other truck.

Both trucks were total losses, police reported.

David Glass, 66, of Steuben had been driving a 1992 Chevrolet, which collided with a westbound 2002 Chevrolet pickup truck operated by James Kneeland, 30, of Ellsworth, police said.

Police said Glass had failed to yield to Kneeland, who tried to swerve to the left to avoid the oncoming truck but was unable to.

More Accidents

A car’s front end was damaged after its driver drove through a washed-out portion of roadway on Wardwell Point Road in Penobscot April 7, police said.

Deputy Chris Thornton said the motorist was unable to see the washout because of fog and rain.

Robert Macdonald, 65, of Orland had been driving east in a 2002 Subaru Legacy, which sustained front-end damage, Thornton said.

Macdonald had a bloody nose and his passenger, Victoria Macdonald, complained of head and neck pain, police said.

Community Outreach

Deputy Scott Kane met with a group of Penobscot residents April 8 to discuss the possibility of creating a community watch program.

“There was a great deal of interest and there will be future meetings to pursue the project,” Kane said.

Citizen Assist

An Orland woman called police Sunday to report that her son was drunk and walking around on his broken foot. She requested that a deputy come to the residence to tell her son to stop walking around before he caused more injury. Police advised the mother that this was not a law enforcement matter.


Deputies warned a Sullivan eel fisherman to stay off a Franklin property after getting a complaint from the property owner Sunday.
